      Audience Member Not sure why all the bad reviews this is one of my favorite westerns, good characters, good adventure, and interesting aspects of the journey. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member It's something of a low budget version of 'The Searchers', but if you can withstand the poor quality appearance there's a fairly decent story here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Found Myself Strangely Enough Really Enjoying This. I Suppose The On-Location Backdrop Just Adds To A Relatively Interesting Tale. I've Visited The Regions Of Canyonlands, Grand Canyon & Arches Parks In Arizona/Utah, & They Are Truly Awe-Inspiring Locations. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Whoever produced this movie was a crooked guy. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Its just too dull and racist. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Cheaply produced, thinly scripted cornball mush with comically bad acting. Pretty racist in an old-fashioned conventional western way, but you'd think they'd have been past that by 1975. Good for riffing night anyway.
